2 place snowmobile trailer behind 40' Class A?

Does anyone have any experience towing a 2 place snowmobile trailer with about a 1,000 lbs on it behind a 40 Class A? I realize it would be a pain to try and back up, since it would be so short. I am wondering about how much it would bounce. Thanks in advance.

I don't know about towing one, but never leave it un-attended unless the snowmobiles are chained down and the trailer is secure. I've had friend have them disappear from their driveway when they only had them held down with ratchet straps. Crooks carry bolt cutters, so even chains might not be enough. Maybe some type of alarm system?

From past experience most snowmobile trailers are sprung for the weight they will be carrying so as not to be a stiff ride.

It's been many years since I've had one and they have since came out with wider tires and aluminum beds, any how it should not bounce anymore than if it were on the back of a car or pick up.
